Auh, a tad too bitter for me but it is one great double IPA. Great Lakes makes wonderful beer though, so try them all.

Pint at the Winking Lizard Cleveland Slightly hazy deep golden with a decent sized bubbly white head. Old school bready caramel maltiness with plenty of citrus and pine and maybe just a hint of tropical. Nice beer.

It pours dark gold with an off white head. It has aromas of pine and some biscuit. It has flavors of pine, hints of citrus, and biscuit. It has a moderate body and is sharply bitter. The bitter finish is long lasting.

Meh...Description begs for something more bitter and hoppy but is more on the malty sweet side. Wasn’t impressed with this offering. You can taste the alcohol also. Would not buy again.

PanMarek (164) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Reddish, golden pour with moderately dense white head. Rich (malty) and piney nose. Moderately bitter with biscuit at the outset and malt at the end. Malty, slippery mouthfeel with moderate fizziness. The finish has some bitterness, but tends toward the malty. The description led me to expect something much stronger in flavor with more prominent bitterness.
